    My Baby Girl

    If you dont have depression,

    dont even bother telling me life gets better. The fact is, your living a happy life, and you dont understand what I am going through. If you dont have depression, you will never understand.

    The Stigma

    There is a reason the subject of mental illness is so vitally important to me.  I know it intimately.  Having lived with chronic clinical depression most of my life, I've learned to deal with it, to function, to manage.  In that way, depression is similar to...

    Clock Ticks, Nothing Changes

    It's real sad that I don't feel alone

    when I'm by myself, I feel more lonely when I'm surrounded by family. Like there is something wrong with me, I feel like a pariah in my own family. I just wanna be far away from here.

    Telling me I can't be sad

    because someone has it harder in life than I do, is like saying someone can't be happy because someone has a better life than them.

    Depression is not easy.

    Never easy. Depression, loneliness, anxiety, fear, procrastination - whatever evil it may be called. But one thing is for sure, it is debilitating. It is heart-wrenching. It is spirit-breaking, even mind-freezing. It sucked the spirit of life in you. Makes you feel both hopeless...

    A car backed out into the lane I was riding in and I didn't have a chance to stop. I hit the pavement and I hurt horribly for a moment before I was able to relax into the pain. I got out with major bruises, but nothing too severe. But I wondered while I was on the pavement...

    Hey! You know how you can have a high self

    esteem that never fails or collapses? Never be wrong! Which is acquired by never thinking you're right in the first place. You need adaptability not strength.

    Happiness Is A Choice? Bullshit.......

    If you honestly deal with depression, you know that you "don't have a choice". People who say that happiness is a choice, don't deal with depression. I'm sorry but it's been proven that chemicals off-balanced in the brain, contribute to depression. Telling a person who has been...
